Swedish dialect voice samples


Just found this site which has short clips of people speaking in different Swedish dialects. I find it pretty interesting. Which dialects are easiest for you to understand? Which are hardest? Which ones do you like the best? Tell me in the comments :)

I am curious about this too. If people wouldn't mind stating where they grew up (not town, but more general like West Coast, USA, etc.), what their native language(s) are. I wonder if that would have an effect on which clips were most understandable to them. :)

I'm from Sörmland (Södermanland) and I speak sörmländska but not like the one in the example in this link. He guy in the clip sounds like he is from Eskilstuna. I'm from more south but I used to live in Eskilstuna during few years.
